This is the story of a young and small producer in Piedmont. Cascina Roera was born in 2002 thanks to two young entrepreneurs: Claudio ROSSO and Piero NEBIOLO (such predestined names!)
They were both already producers of quality wine, but they decided to start together something important, to improve the quality of products. Claudio started to get involved in 1985 already with his family firm but only in 2000 he became a full time wine grower. His father was one of the pioneer in bottling his wines back in the sixties, when most of the producers of the area where selling their wines in bulks. Piero also was born in a wine grower family and, decided to focus on quality, he started to bring together around 5 hectares among the most suitable in the area. He replanted partly to Barbera and added other varieties such as Nebbiolo and Chardonnay.
Sauro Maule followed his father Lino Maule with their existing farm “Il Cavallino” which started many years ago on the hills of the Colli Berici. Il Cavillino means small horse in Italian. As the name suggest this was the horsefarm. A few years ago, with the purchase of old family terrains in Selva of Montebello Vicentino, the farm changed its course and started a renovation in the vineyard management systems. Existing pergolas were replaced by guyot system.
Sauro’s ambition is to eliminate use of any kind of chemicals in the vineyard continues. Only if necessary, use copper and sulfur is permitted. At the same time Sauro is experimenting new natural solutions with the goal of eliminating even these basic treatments. Il Cavallino do not use herbicides or pesticides. In the winery same principles are followed as in the vineyard. There is no addition of synthetic substances. The only exception is for sulfur dioxide which is added only in small quantities when necessary. As a result, residues in the final wine that never exceed 35 mg/l.
